The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, April 3, 2002 - 7
Continued from Page 1
Amid the fiercest Israeli offensive in 18 months of
conflict, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat angrily reject-
ed an Israeli offer to free him from confinement in his
compound in the West Bank town of Ramallah - pro-
vided he goes into exile. Arafat spent the day pinned
down by Israeli troops and tanks, his. compound now
ringed by barbed wire.
Israeli troops pressed ahead with house-to-house
searches for Palestinian militants and weapons as part
of what Israel calls "Operation Protective Wall" -
aimed at halting terror attacks targeting Israelis.
In the seventh such attack in as many days, a Pales-
tinian suicide bomber was blown up when Israeli sol-
diers shot and detonated explosives he had strapped to
his body. The incident occurred at a checkpoint in
Baka al-Sharkiyeh, a Palestinian village along the line
between Israel and the West Bank. The man died but
no one else was injured, the military said.
In a dramatic gesture that underscored hardships
caused by the Israeli incursion, Palestinians buried 15
of their dead in a hospital parking lot in Ramallah.
Families of the dead had been unable to claim the bod-
ies, which were decomposing in a hospital morgue
because power cuts made refrigeration impossible.

Relatives wailed and gunfire from fighting echoed as
the bodies were placed in common graves carved out
by a bulldozer - one for 13 men, one for two women.
Ramallah residents, though, got a respite of a few
hours from a curfew that has been in effect since
Israeli tanks and troops moved in on Friday. People
poured into the shops, lugging away canisters of cook-
ing oil and plastic bags bulging with pita bread.
Canned goods were popular, as many people have no
electricity and perishable food has been rotting in
By nightfall, most of the about 400 Palestinians
trapped in Rajoub's compound near Ramallah had
surrendered to Israeli troops, in a deal- brokered by
U.S. and European officials. About eight men
remained inside. The sprawling compound was bat-
tered by the Israeli onslaught, with gaping holes
punched in rooftops and building facades by shell-
fire and rockets.
Holy places were not immune from violence that
raged the length and breadth of the West Bank.
Dozens of armed Palestinians were holed up inside the
Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, which is built
over the grotto where tradition says Jesus was born.
About 20 of the gunmen were wounded and being
tended to by nuns, according to witnesses trapped in
the church compound.
The armed men, some of them Palestinian police-
men, forced their way into the church after running
battles with Israeli troops firing from helicopter gun-
ships and from tank-mounted machine guns. At night-
fall, the bodies of four gunmen lay sprawled just off
Manger Square, where the church is located.
As Israeli troops circled the church, the men rested
in pews and on the stone floor, said Samir, a Palestin-
ian policeman inside the church. About 20 of the gun-
men were wounded and being tended to by several
nuns and priests, Samir said.
"Most of the guys have run out of bullets," Samir
said by telephone.
About 120 armed men were hiding in the church,
said Marc Innaro, a correspondent for Italy's RAI TV,
who was trapped in the compound by the fighting
along with five colleagues.
As the fighting intensified, Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon proposed publicly for the fa-st time that diplo-
mats fly Arafat into exile. Sharon noted such a move,
would require Cabinet approval. Arafat denounced the
suggestion, saying he would rather be a "martyr" than
go into exile.
Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said the
offensive would last three to four weeks, the first sen-
ior Israeli official to give a time frame. However,
Sharon has said the campaign was open-ended.

But the focus won't be on the Detroit
Country Day and Michigan star's
improved mid-range jumper.
According to a federal indictment
released two weeks ago, Martin loaned
Webber about $280,000 from 1988-93
while he was in high school and col-
lege. Webber has called the situation,
"There's no way in the world that I
took $280,000 from someone," Webber
said in an interview with ESPN last
weekend, "... and in no way do I want to
mess up the name of college basketball,
especially my university, the University
of Michigan, which is the greatest uni-
versity ever in the world. ... I don't want
to put a bad mark on my family's name,
so as I said before, no, I did not accept
the money. And how can you take the
word of a criminal anyway?"
Martin, a retired Ford Motor Co. elec-
trician, and his wife were arrested
March 21 on charges of running an ille-
gal gambling business, conspiracy and
money laundering. They allegedly
loaned former Michigan players Web-
ber, Robert Traylor, Maurice Taylor and
Louis Bullock more than $600,000.
Cleaves' name is nowhere in the
indictment, but ironically, he's linked to
the six-year scandal.
Martin's name first surfaced after Tay-
lor lost control of his Ford Explorer on
Feb. 17, 1996, as he was returning from
Detroit where he entertained Cleaves
and visited Martin during Cleaves' offi-
cial visit to Michigan.
Cleaves said he and Webber don't
spend much time talking about the
"We laugh about it," Cleaves said.
"But it's nothing we pay much attention
to. The one thing I've learned is, people
have to write about something. If it's
good news, it's in the papers for one or
two days. If it's negative, it can become
news for years."
Some are still bitter that Webber
chose to stay in Sacramento when he
could've signed with Detroit last sum-
mer. Others blame him for playing a part
in damaging Michigan's reputation.
But Webber said he'll enjoy his
stay in Detroit.
"There's going to be a lot of love,"
Webber said yesterday night after the
Kings beat the Grizzlies in Memphis.
"I think there's going to be a few
boos sprinkled in, and then it will just
be the game.
"It's kind of like I hope I get booed a
little bit because that will be respect of
how well our team is playing. ... I'm a
number-one Pistons fan besides Sacra-
mento, so I understand if I have to get
booed for the team."

No, several people involved in the

moved so quickly because of the recent
downturn in Michigan's economy -

available to fund the universities -

act fast, the money would disappear,

wanted to be at a time like that.
Sosebee said the American media
are biased in representations of the
Middle Eastern conflict, and it repre-
sents the Palestinians in a way that
tends to be more sympathetic toward
the Israeli state.
"It is done in a manner which is
insulting to everyone's intelligence,"
he said, addingthat the media makes it
look like Palestinians are "the ones
who are aggressive and Israelis are
But Sosebee portrayed the Israelis
as the aggressors, calling the Israeli
occupation of Palestinian settlements
the highest form of terrorism. He
blamed Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon for starting the second Intifada
after visiting the al-Aqsa Mosque and
Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
He also attacked the American gov-
ernment and the Bush administration
for helping to fund the Israeli military.
"Until government policy changes
to be more fair, balanced and reason-
able" the oppression would continue,
he said. "We have to intervene and say
enough is enough."
"If we continue to humiliate and
occupy Palestinians I think we are in
